Wingman had the new Kinetic ( as opposed to Avant Garde ) Fouga Magister. It seems these two are going head to head again as they did with the Kfir.

They had a built up version. It includes seperate flaps, open and closed canopies and the solid canopy fairings for the various users

The made up Israeli version was simply stunning, as was the German and Portugese Alpha Jets in the Wingman range that Uses Kinetic tooling with resin upgrades.(...)

 

Any pictures from this Kinetic 1/48th Fouga Magister test build/test shot?

What a gorgeous image.

If I had a ridiculous amount of money and a small oil well and could have just one primary jet trainer, it would be the Magister. A superb aeroplane.

Lucky guy. Do you have other Kinetic kits ? If so did the quality of the surface detailing (panel lines, etc) improve or it's the same ?

Got it today. With customs etc work out at £24 a kit shipped. Looks to me their best yet with slightly crisper detail than before. Small brass sheet and nice decal sheet. Looks an easy build.

Reveiced it today. The darker plastic emphasizes the improved surface detailing. It looks like a good value-for-money kit.

"Wingman had the new Kinetic ( as opposed to Avant Garde ) Fouga Magister. It seems these two are going head to head again as they did with the Kfir."

I wonder, what their next "race" it would be!!!!! Perhaps a 1/48 Aermacchi MB326????

I got one yesterday, 2 in a box which is good as it means choosing which set of markings to use is easier. The moulding does look crisp but there are a lot of tiny and fragile looking parts which will require careful removal from the sprue. There are no instrument panel decals which is a shame as the dials on the kit panels are blank.
